[QUOTE]Ribs- Had to open up the intake full after the fire stalled and ended up cooking longer than should have. /QUOTE] [QUOTE]Had the intake about 1/4 as recommended./QUOTE]
I had a similar experience with my second cook on the PBC with the fire stalling while cooking ribs and chicken. Like you, I had set my vent 1/4 open...at least I thought it was 1/4 open until I saw a PBC vent reference diagram from the PBC Co. and realized I had the vent closed more than 1/4 which probably caused the stall. Have since cooked butt, brisket and 2 pizzas with no problems. Couldn't hurt to contact Amber at the PBC Co. for a copy of the vent opening reference.
